MATCH PREVIEW

Who Goes Top of the Premier League?

It's been a year in which events we'd never dreamed of have taken place. Another one is on its way this Saturday when Crystal Palace host Everton. The simple fact is that whoever wins this game will go top of the Premier League. In fact, a draw will achieve the same result will see Everton go top.

Both Palace and Everton have won their first two Premier League games of the season. There's only one league fixture taking place before this match at Selhurst Park. That's Brighton v Manchester United at lunchtime and this is the only 3pm fixture on a Saturday, older readers will be hugely disappointed with that fact.

Crystal Palace have had a strange year for sure. They started it well and when the Premier League was suspended, they had an outside chance of qualifying for Europe. Post lockdown began well with a 2-0 win at Bournemouth, their fourth straight league win and all with clean sheets. Then it all went wrong for the Eagles. Seven straight defeats to end the season and in six of them they failed to score.

This season has seen them back to the form of early 2020. They kicked off the season with a 1-0 home win over Southampton, then went to Old Trafford and beat United 3-1. Wilfried Zaha has been a key player for them this season. Three goals in two games, just one less than he scored in 38 last season. He has to be a good bet to get on the scoresheet at some point in this match. Then, it's a case of Palace ensuring he doesn't leave before the transfer window shuts.

Palace tend not to score that many at home. The past two seasons saw them score just 34 goals in 38 games, that's 83 less than Manchester City have managed. A bet on under 2.5 goals being scored in a Palace home game is always worth making. Only nine games in the last two seasons have had over 2.5 goals scored. 

Toffees in Tremendous Form

For Everton, it was another up and down campaign last term. More downs than ups to be honest but this season has already seen a big improvement. Two league wins in a row and even one in an away game. They are through to the last 16 of the Carabao Cup too (unlike Palace who lost to Bournemouth in round two).

Their league season began with a 1-0 win at Tottenham. A significant result for a club that has struggled on the road in recent years. 20 away league fixtures have been lost in the last two seasons, but there are signs that their away day blues are coming to an end. The win at Tottenham was their third in their last five, all achieved without conceding a goal.

Carlo Ancelotti's side followed that opening weekend win with a 5-2 hammering of West Brom at Goodison Park. A Calvert-Lewin hat-trick and promising display by new signing Jamie Rodriguez are two reasons Everton can look forward to a good season. Midweek saw them in the goals again with a 5-2 cup win at Fleetwood Town with a couple of goals from Richarlison.

The Toffees arrive at Selhurst Park in top form and with players in goal scoring form.  They are unbeaten against Palace in their last 11 meetings and it's 26 years since they lost a league game at Selhurst Park. A draw no bet wager on them looks a good bet to make. It might only last a few hours but Everton fans will love bragging to Liverpool supporters that they are top of the Premier League.
